Information About Technology
When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Patel and the team competently utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality of your dental care.
We provide an array of innovations in dentistry, including: Digital Intra Oral Cameras, Digital X-Rays, LOGICON™ Decay Detection, 3D Cone Beam CT, T-Scan™ Bite Analysis, BioJVA™ Joint Vibration Analysis™, BioEMG™ Electromyography, CEREC™ – Single Visit Restorations, Laser Dentistry with Waterlase™ and Diode Lasers and Zoom™ and Laser in-office teeth whitening. .
The in-office technologies we provide yield a more precise individual diagnosis and controlled engineered treatments to truly minimize procedural risks (including better infection control), generate improved post-operative results and most importantly, generate longevity for your dental health, while minimizing the number of visits.
CEREC® is an exciting, one-of-a-kind dental technology used to quickly and effectively create beautiful, metal free, tooth-colored dental restorations in just one office visit without impressions and temporary teeth with improved infection control. Using CEREC®, Dr. Patel has provided patients with a lasting and matching dental restorations without the inconvenience of a second appointment for almost 20 years. He has lectured, published and served as a Beta-Tester and In-Office Trainer for CEREC® technology through the years.
Intraoral cameras are very small (a few millimeters in length) but very powerful cameras that are used during dental procedures to provide Dr. Patel with very clear, highly precise images of our mouth, teeth, and gums. This technology allows us to diagnose and treat quickly for lasting oral health.
Digital 3D x-rays with cone beam CT technology produce high-quality digital images for the diagnosis, planning, and treatment of conditions that may require oral surgery including dental implants. By allowing Dr. Patel to see beyond the surface accurately, the guesswork is taken out of the surgery-planning phase, providing more beneficial outcomes.
Digital radiographs allow The Smile Gallery to see details about the mouth that may otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Digital images reduce exposure times by 50% while serving as an invaluable aid to both our dental team and our patients’ overall health.
Logicon™ caries software works on digital radiographs (x-rays) taken in our office. Dr. Sangiv I. Patel will then apply his expertise and Logicon™ caries software to verify and precisely identify any issues with decay or failing restorations on your teeth. The chance of missing decay is minimized, therefore, giving you the most accurate and precise diagnosis early.
This handheld device is used to identify malocclusion. By biting down on the thin sensor, our computer technology records the exact position of your teeth and provides our team with a series of comprehensive images to fully comprehend your bite. Using this detailed image, Dr. Patel can create a treatment plan.
Our joint vibration analysis with Bio-JVA technology provides a fast, accurate, and extremely dependable measurement of friction and vibration in the jaw to help us effectively diagnose cases of TMJ. The entire diagnosing procedure lasts about 20 minutes, and patients can be on their way.
Designed to help Dr. Sangiv I Patel objectively evaluate your craniofacial muscles, the BioEMG™ is extremely fast and simple to use. While the system identifies and records function of your facial muscles, the intuitive display provides easy-to-interpret information so that Dr. Patel is provided comprehensive information.
